“Marchini’s story and economy of telling display the chicken as total id, and Felix’s pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are genuine works of art. A surprising gem.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Chicken Wants a Nap

Chicken Wants A Nap

It’s a good day to be a chicken. The sun is up. The grass is warm. And Chicken wants a nap.

In this humorous tale, a barnyard chicken goes on a quest for the perfect nap-time spot. As the barnyard conspires against her, Chicken must work harder to get that nap she desperately desires.

Will she be able to take a snooze? And does that mean bad news someone else?
